Looks pretty good! Here are a couple of things that come to mind:

You only have a few ally cards in the deck. As a result I'm worried that the ones that require multiple allies to be in play to be useful such as Agadeem Occultist and Drana's Chosen will often times not be as relevent as you hope. If you're not planning on adding other allies, i'd probably cut them. Additionally, I saw you put a combo with drana's chosen in the description but i don't understand how it works (it's possible i'm just missing something though). Assuming you had a sac outlet and either a second thornbite staff or Conspiracy (to make the tokens also be allies), i could see it working but since the staff only untaps one creature and you need to tap two allies to make a token (the chosen and another ally), you appear to be limited by the amount of allies already in play.

Here are a few other shamans you might want to consider: Leaf-Crowned Elder, Oracle of Mul Daya, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest

Dauntless Dourbark for maximum smash, Everbark Shaman for crazy ramp (notice that doesn't say basic lands, get duals and shocks if they're in your budget and if not you can still grab murmuring bosk), and Leaf-Crowned Elder is insane.

Treefolk Seedlings and Kalonian Twingrove are two more smash-tastic creatures

Looks like you want to pimp the abilities of Call to the Kindred, Leaf-Crowned Elder and Descendants' Path. Looks like your using "Changeling" to do it. You could drop some of the superfluous changelings and go for Runed Stalactite.

Keep Shapesharer at least, because its low cost and useful later game.

I would switch Deep-Sea Kraken for Inkwell Leviathan because it hits harder, takes more damage and can't be targeted. Loose Odric altogether because he only works during combat, and ditch thraximunder to add more Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

20 land may not be enough. Speaking of lands... Halimar Depths is exactly what you need and its fits the majority of your color scheme. The deck feels like it wants to be Blue/Green. Maybe White. Red and Black should probably go. That's just how I would build around the "Kinship" cards.

One of my buddies built Mono-Green Treefolk and it's a great metagame call.

A lot of your creatures dodge the format's removal, except Path to Exile. They're too big to hit with cards like Pyroclasm. You get a lot of value from the Treefolk you do play.

Just from memory (so I'm not sure if this is the exact list), he plays something like:

4x Cavern of Souls
4x Blighted Woodland
16x Forest
---------------------------------------------------
24 Lands

4x Bosk Banneret
4x Dauntless Dourbark
4x Dungrove Elder
4x Leaf-Crowned Elder
4x Seedguide Ash
4x Timber Protector
4x Treefolk Harbinger
---------------------------------------------------
28 Creatures

4x Lignify
4x Rootgrapple
---------------------------------------------------
8 Other Spells

Sideboard:
2x Beast Within
1x Choke
2x Creeping Corrosion
3x Nature's Claim
3x Relic of Progenitus
2x Scavenging Ooze
1x Thragtusk
1x Woodfall Primus

I'm not sure if this is his exact list or what his sideboard looks like. I don't remember if he plays much mana ramp (Search for Tomorrow and Sakura-Tribe Elder both help a lot). I think that's a decent recollection of what his sideboard looks like, but I'm not positive on that either (just that it had the usual green hatecrap found in Modern).

For a less than 100$, your brew did fantastic. Yeah, Harbinger is a wonderful toolbox in itself (and really bonkers with Leaf-Crowned Elder or Sapling of Colfenor online). Fetch lands are brilliant and thus ridiculously expensive. They are the most consistent way of fixing mana when paired with burn lands. The thinning of the deck is debatable, but I think in lists like this and somewhat similar builds that run Descendants' Path etc. the thinning is actually effective. So yeah I do recommend in investing in what your pet deck needs most. Merry Christmas too :)

Haha, sorry to bring up such an old thread (and from a different website on top of that)! You're literally the only other person I could find that's made a Treefolk/Shaman mixed deck and I feel like it might have potential. Well, one that uses both Harbingers at least.

As far as cards that are both Shaman/Treefolk, there's Bosk Banneret and Leaf-Crowned Elder that might work well. Neither would dilute the deck since they're shamans as well. Just not sure if the Elder is quick enough for modern. The only non-Shaman card I'd consider adding is Treefolk Harbinger and that's to find one of the two trees, depending on the situation, or a Forest.

Or do you think the deck would perform better without Treefolk Harbinger and Leaf-Crowned Elder?

Good work! Now, I can go a couple different ways with my remarks.

Option One: The Joke -> This would basically be me advising you on other cards to put in your current build. Like you said, your general is definitely not a real card, so I would treat this deck like a joke, and thus would suggest cards accordingly.

Option Two: A Real Deck -> With some color modification, Doran, the Siege Tower would be an excellent general for you. Granted, you wouldn't run actual walls, as they still couldn't attack (except for when you have Wakestone Gargoyle, Rolling Stones, or Assault Formation). However, it is of a similar mindset. Creatures with big booties, such as Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Nyx-Fleece Ram, and Skinshifter, become quite good with Doran around. Also, various other treefolk such as Indomitable Ancients, Leaf-Crowned Elder, Unstoppable Ash, and Treefolk Harbinger. Not to mention the often untapped and always fetchable Murmuring Bosk. That's all I'll say for the moment on that. Lemme know if that's a direction you'd like to go!

I think at that point you may as well turn it into/play a Tooth and Nail deck.

The enchantment ramp is nice to quickly play big creatures but Dauntless Dourbark and Dungrove Elder work better if we have ramp that actually pulls lands out of our deck and onto the battlefield.

I'm hesitant to add in any non-Treefolk or non-Shaman spells so as to maximize the amount of cards hit by Leaf-Crowned Elder. Each Kinship trigger we can get basically gives us a free spell and essentially an extra draw at the start of the turn.

I've been recently trying out a version with Cream of the Crop. Although it's not a Treefolk or Shaman card, it complements Leaf-Crowned Elder well by helping shape your draws so that a creature is always on top. I've also thrown a few more higher-powered Treefolk in so we can dig deeper with each trigger. I may update the decklist soon with this new version if it continues to play well
